+ ECHO SMITH
Born and bred in Ottawa. I have lived here my whole life. So long that the hospital I was born in doesn’t even take emergencies any more! I have loved radio since the age of 8 years old. My first radio show was recorded on our family’s portable tape recorder in which I introduced the songs, and sang them. Not well I might add. I have worked at the Jewel for the past 4 years and I was lucky enough to get this gig straight out of college. This place is like a second family! #JewelCrew
Favourite Food: Food in general is good! I will try basically anything once. I always get the same thing (if they have it) when I try out a new restaurant; Chicken Caesar Salad and French Onion Soup. I figure if don’t do easy recipes well then the restaurant will get a so-so rating in my opinion.
Favourite Movie: This is hard! I’m a total movie buff! But my ultimate favourite movie is Whale Rider. It’s a film out of New Zealand and I could watch it over and over again. Some others that have made my top ten are Terminator, Stand By Me, Opal Dream, Ruby Sparks, and Little Miss Sunshine.
Favourite Activities: I’m very much a home body so everything I do is around the house rather than out and about. I love cooking and baking! I love bringing treats in to the station for all to try!
Favourite Artists: How can you not love it all! Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, the Bee Gees, Whitney Huston, Huey Lewis and the News and much, much more! If I hear Marc Cohn-Walking in Memphis I can guarantee you that I’m singing to it!
